Details of the Question
Is it permissible to be busy with something while the Quran is recited?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

If the Quran is recited by a person and if we hear it, it is fard to listen to it and to keep silent. It is not permissible to be busy with something else.

However, it is not fard to listen to the Quran recited on television, computer, radio, etc. However, we will get rewards if we listen to it. Therefore, it is permissible both to listen to the Quran from an electronic device and to study if one has no intention of insulting the Quran. (see Elmalılı Hamdi Yazır, Tafsir, Interpretation of Araf 204)
